31 (who?)

Say goodbye to that man you know,

The one who was only there to make amends.

Say goodbye to the old me, as I go,

Because I suppose this is the way he ends.


Say goodbye to the cynical me,

The man who kept everything to himself,

Let him rest in peace, and welcome me.

For I am here still, and I am... Myself?


Say goodbye to the Cynicist,

Say goodbye to the anger and the hate,

Say hello to the Optimist.

Say hello to who you'll learn to hate.


Because that's just it, it's easily done.

I flick a switch, and I'm the old me,

I guess he was never really gone.

Say Hello to the Optimist.


For the writer of this piece is dead.

I might even like religion again :shrug:
But anyway, good morning Deviantart! :D

Well, if this is about you, I'm glad you're becoming more optimistic and hopefully happier, and if its not, its still a beautiful poem. :)
